With the Cape Cod Parent Resource Fair rapidly approaching we will be sharing blog posts on our participating sponsors, vendors and nonprofits. You will find out more about these amazing businesses and what they offer to our community. They will be sharing their services, advice, what challenges face our community as well as upcoming events they will be having. Make sure to check out our virtual program and resource guide ahead of the event so you can plan for what you want to see! We hope to see you at the Resource Fair!
1. Tell us about your business/non profit and how it benefits local families?
Edaville Family Theme Park loves to give back to the community in any way that we can. During November and December of 2017, we held a Canned Food Drive. Any park guest who brought in a canned good received 40% off their ticket, and their donation was used to aid “Shane Gives Thanks”, a local food pantry that helps families in need, especially during the holiday season. The same food pantry also aids local students enrolled in the “Peyton Pack Program”, sending weekend meals home with them. We also benefit local families by remaining affordable! We allow outside food to be brought into the park and offer many promotions and discounts throughout the year!
2. Where is it located?
Edaville Family Theme Park is located in Carver, MA
3. What is your favorite part about our community?
Our favorite part about our community is that they are always willing to help! In October we held a book drive for the children of the Houston Independent School District who were affected by Hurricane Harvey. When called into action to aid people in need, even out of state, over 2,000 children’s books came pouring in! We were blown away by the community’s response to help. It is only because of the community that these fundraisers are so successful.
4. How else do you get involved with the community?
Throughout the year, we offer different promotions on specific days to honor members of the community because they do so much for us! As a salute to America’s bravest, all active military personnel including veterans receive free admission to the park on our Military Appreciation Weekends. On First Responder Appreciation Days, EMTs, doctors, nurses, firefighters and police officers are given 50% off full priced admission for helping to keep us safe. Other members of the community that get their own appreciation day discounts include: residents of surrounding towns, teachers, and kids who do well on their report cards and summer reading lists just to name a few! We love to give back as much as we can to thank these hard-working people!
5. What are the biggest challenges facing parents in our community?
The biggest challenge facing parents in our community is being able to find places to go and things to do that are fun for the whole family. Edaville Family Theme Park’s goal is to ensure that everyone has a blast, no matter how old you are! We are proud to be a part of so many families’ memories and traditions because there are rides, attractions and events here that people of all ages can enjoy!
6. What is your favorite memory or story over the years involving you and your business?
One of Edaville Family Theme Park’s favorite memories comes from a recent feature on Good Morning America in a segment about how amusement parks are welcoming children with autism. We were honored to appear on the show but even happier that we can offer autism friendly accommodations to embrace all families. We want everyone to feel included at Edaville!
7. What advice would you give parents and care givers in our community?
If Edaville Family Theme Park could give advice to parents and caregivers, it would be to create experiences and make memories with your children. Family togetherness has always been important to us, and there’s no better way to both teach your children and learn from them than spending time together!
8. Do you have any specials, events, or anything else taking place this upcoming year that our parents should know?
Edaville Family Theme Park’s 2018 Grand Opening is April 7th! We have many promotions, discounts, character meet and greets and seasonal events throughout the year! Check out our website’s calendar and follow us on Facebook for details!
